Default Long Island, NY

Of Course Long Island, New York counts, Vlad! It is a body of land surrounded on all sides by water. Thus it IS an Island. In addition I will list a few Aviation related highlights Long Island is known for:

-Charles Lindergh took off for Paris from Roosevelt Field in 1927
-Home of Grumman Aerospace, which in addition to countless military aircraft was the chief contractor of the Lunar Module
-Former home of Republic Aviation of P-47 fame (as well as countless other great airplanes)
-Home of Floyd Bennet Field which was the starting point for many flights by pilots named Amelia Earhart, Wiley Post, Roscoe Turner and none other than Howard Hughes

So by all means do include Long Island on your list. And drop me a note next time you are stopping by Gabreski Airport for food. My treat!
